Science Interpretation Training

July 22nd 2018

Hello all,   We are developing science interpretation training for our Public Programs staff, currently using NAI’s interpretation standards and Pacific Science Center’s Portal to the Public. If anyone is willing to share their interpretation training process and/or training documents with me, I’d love to see what’s successful for other institutions. Thanks for your help!   *Hazel Theriault *** Public Programs Coordinator * * *Orlando Science Center* 407-514-2046 | *[email protected]* Website |* *Give ...Continue Reading

RE: Docent Peer Evaluations

July 20th 2018

Hi Angela, We would love the form. I tried to do docent peer evaluations when I first came to the Long Beach Museum of Art. The docents were so fearful of the outcome. We have been practicing mindfulness and growth mindset with the Council for several years, and I now feel they are ready to do peer evaluations. A Google Folder would be perfect way to share the document. Also it would be interesting to read comments Docents at other museums give.   Best, Lisa Marsh Director of Education and Visitor Services 562 ...Continue Reading

RE: Docent Peer Evaluations

July 20th 2018

Hello, We pair an education staff member with a peer evaluator for our docent evaluations. Over the past few years, I have been encouraging the peer evaluators to take a more vocal role in the evaluation conversations. I have seen some of the docents who frequently serve as peer evaluators begin to offer more constructive criticism as a result.   I would be happy to share our forms. I think that starting a Google folder would be a good idea. Best, Angela Angela Parker Docent and Tour Programs Manager Wad ...Continue Reading

Hello, I would also like to be in on this conversation, please. Peer evaluation has been hard to implement at CMOA, as the docents are so kind to one another that it becomes difficult for them to be critical and constructive.
